This is the fiftieth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Oscar and Clabber. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use the statements to determine which three cows are Nowhey cows.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Don't overthink this one. Assume a variety of possibilities and try each one.

Hint Two
    Assign a breed to a cow and then run through all the cows' statements to see if they are consistent with your findings. You should come across the solution soon.

Hint Three
    Let's assume for a moment that cow A is a Troomoo. If you assume this to be true and go through the statements for each cow, you should come to the conclusion that you must have three Troomoo cows and two Nowheys. Since you know this to be false, you know that your original assumption must be incorrect.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Think hard about what the cows said and try again.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

Cows A, C, and E are Nowheys. If you assume each cow to be a Nowhey or a Troomoo and run through each of the cows' statements, you'll eventually realize that all statements are true when cows A, C, and E are assumed to be Nowheys.

[edit] Solution

Cows A, C, and E are Nowheys.

[edit] Progress

1065 Picarats and 72 Hint Coins.
